I’m burying the lead, so if you want the most important announcement, start from the bottom.

 

For the fist time in years I’m getting exited for Halloween, which makes me exceedingly happy. It has always been one of my favorite days of they year, along with Maris Gras and St Patrick’s. This time everything seems to be turning up Millhouse for the month of October.

This Saturday I’m doing a reading at the Red Line Tap as part of a series known as the Brass Monkey Brunch. Come check it out if you can.

Just as I think I’m starting to get the hang of this twitter thing (by the way what the fuck is the use of favoriting something? why don’t you just retweet it if you like it so much? Yeah, I still have a few kinks to work out) Delphi tells me, “pfft! no one is on twitter anymore!”
ugh! so much for keeping up with todays youth. I am told what I really need is a Tumbler if I want to ‘get the word out’.

well, be so proud, cause I got one. if you want to see it, it’s the same name as this site but with a .tumblr added to the middle bit before the .com. making it, http://www.bloggingsofadirtyoldman.tumblr.com , but don’t get too excited cause I haven’t put anything there yet. I’m not sure how I’ll distinguish between what I put up here and what I put up there. Anyhoo, I’ll let you know when I start doing more with it.

Nextly, In November I am launching a YouTube Channel. I’ll give you more details next week when the thing becomes more real, but be on the lookout for the announcement.

But the big announcement of the day is

I’ve gone and made me a kickstarter.

Yes yes. I’m jumping on the bandwagon and I couldn’t be more thrilled to be doing so. The project is called Descent into Madness. It’s a kind of writng extraviganza/interactive art piece/riff off of Molly Crabbapple’s Week in Hell. The “TL;DR”, as the kids say, is I will be locking myself in a room for a week and writing whatever the backers tell me to while streaming the whole thing live. There’s more to it and you will be able to read much more once the project is live.

expect me to be talking a lot more about this as the week and month go on. I will keep a running update with funding along with my nano score (yes I’m still doing that), for now here is the preview link

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1679282695/938011972?token=024ec583

I’m only putting the preview up here. I don’t want to advertise the actual site too much till I think it’s solid, but just to get some feedback, I’m letting you swell chaps in a few days early.

happy halloween
